Autumn Trails

Every Weekend in October

For more than 60 years Winnsboro has hosted the Autumn Trails Celebration every October.  The town is filled with visitors from not just Texas but surrounding states as well.  The highlights of the month are the Antique Car parade that is the largest in the Southwest.  There are a variety of events each weekend to enjoy.  If you care for a drive there are four driving tours to see the colors of fall.
